[MOC] [LDD] Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer

Recommended Posts

Here is version 1 of the TIE Silencer based on all of the revealed photos and taking some design techniques used in the official Lego set primarily to use the printed pieces. It looks like the hull should primarily be dark gray but The printed hatch that comes with the lego set looks to be black... I'm still tweaking a few areas and playing around with the distribution of black and gray on the hull. Shout out to RebelBuilder, as used some great techniques on his early model based off of just one leaked photo (I kind of like his design better than the official design)

Nice, in scale model than my microfighter version but I think that you should modify front edges of panels to be more sharp like this ;)
Attach .lxf file if you want to :)

Really great job - thanks for posting this :thumbup:

The wing tips need finishing though as they're a bit blunt atm.

It would be awesome if you could attach the lxf - I'd try and get it built this weekend if you did

Yes, still need to finish the wingtips. I'll try and get the LXF up tonight or tomorrow.

Ok, some updates. Re-worked the aft end and engines, tips of the wings and blasters and the coloring. Next is the interior. 

Here is the LXF

Very nice job, you've got the squashed, stretched look spot on. Have any pictures released or leaked so far shown an interior? Or are you making your own guess?

There's a few reviews of the whole thing on youtube if you want a better look

Amazing build. It must have been hard to make this accurate, as there are conflicting sources regarding the Silencer’s design. Your version seems pretty accurate to the one officially revealed by Star Wars.

Now that I have the official Lego model I'm going to build it, see what changes I might make to my model and then order the extra pieces I need.

Hi @jameseilers any chance you could send me the Lxf files? Really want to upgrade my original set to your awesome build! Thank you (or if anyone else downloaded the now defunct Lxf file, could you please send it to me?)

Cheers!
